2020 will be the year of small festive gatherings: here’s how we’re embracing a new kind of Christmas

Your Christmas table might have fewer people around it this year, but that doesn’t mean it can’t feel special. Here’s how we’re making the most of this odd festive season.


It seems that almost everyone’s Christmas table will look a little different this year. Those who usually have the whole extended family over might find themselves with a much smaller gathering, while others may be missing loved ones who can’t return home from abroad.

Perhaps you find yourself in charge of Christmas Day celebrations for the first time, and are feeling unprepared, or usually go to a restaurant or hotel for your festive celebrations. No matter what your situation, however, it’s important to remember that just because the day might be different, doesn’t mean it can’t be wonderful.

This year we’re embracing the festive season in its pared-back form. With no endless stream of Christmas gatherings in the lead-up to the big day, less food preparation, and online shopping definitely our method of choice this year, we’re planning on spending our Christmas relaxing after a tough year, not frantically trying to make sure everything is perfect.

That doesn’t mean, however, that the day itself can’t feel special. With a small gathering, there’s much less preparation. You can also make your Christmas table the star of the show by renting or buying a festive tablescape from Irish company Gotcha Covered.

It completely removes any hassle with table styling. No trawling busy shops looking for napkins, or racking your brain for how to make the same candlesticks and tablecloth look different this year.

Not only will you have a spectacular tablescape that will really make the day special, Gotcha Covered make the whole thing totally stress-free: you can click and collect, or they can deliver your chosen Christmas tablescape directly to your door.

What’s more, there are 12 different styles to choose from, so whether you love a traditional look or want something more glamorous, you’re sure to find something to suit. Each style includes personalised name cards with the option of including custom menus to make it all tailored especially to you.

It’s the perfect way to make this Christmas feel special, no matter how different things may be this year.

Gotcha Covered are here to bring a bit of sparkle and magic to your home by having your chosen Christmas tablescape delivered directly to your door. Launching their Christmas At Home Collection, Gotcha Covered have carefully curated 12 festive tablescapes that are available for rental and purchase, available now for the entire festive season. Any orders for Christmas Day must be placed no later than Friday December 18. Prices start from €150 inc. VAT for a minimum of 6 guests.
